On Always Learning

I love to learn. I love learning new things and I think it is so important to constantly expand your knowledge of the world and of yourself. I love learning about architecture, history, other cultures and countries, the list goes on and on. But one thing I am thankful that I am learning right now is the guitar (yes the above photo is how I learn guitar - notecards and youtube). There's something so magical about developing a skill and seeing yourself get better at it (slowly slowly slowly but surely) over time. I started teaching myself to play guitar about a year ago and I am nowhere close to where I would like to be but am constantly improving. I appreciate every tiny little accomplishment because I know those tiny accomplishments all contribute to bigger improvements over time. What are you learning at the moment? 


  1. so fun that you are learning guitar! do you think you would ever try to perform?!

    i am trying to teach myself photography but am slacking! thanks for the reminder to get back to my online class tonight! i do feel sooo good after i finish a module or learn a new technique with my camera!

  2. That's so awesome you're teaching yourself to play guitar! I've taken lessons and learned a bit so many times, but can still only play the basic chords. And keep moving and never bring my guitar. It's awful, really. I hope you keep it up! I love learning new things all the time, too. Right now I'm relearning math, because apparently you need that for the GMAT. The LSAT was so much easier. Ha. :)
